Has anyone installed the 2 inch SST on a 2024 Trail Boss? Ready Lift says they have not tested and cannot confirm fitment.

Same question here. I was just going to do a level up front but thought, if I'm going to do anything why not just do the SST 2" but same reply from RL. But seems to be common response. Amp said same about running boards. Rough Country seems to have verified everything for 24s .

As you can see, I never got a reply. And I checked in the FB forums too. No one would say for sure. So I ordered the kit and took it to the shop. The guy said everything looked the same so I had him do it. Everything worked fine. I'm just about to turn 300 miles on the lift and go back for a check and re-torque. It feels tighter than stock. I'm happy with it other than my stock 18's and 32's look small now.

Yeah, I contacted a local shop and they are the ones that suggested RL leveling kit. I couldn't find on the RL site but was looking for 24 parts. So email and they replied it hadn't been verified but the shop had no issue with suggesting it. Look good! And looks like it sits level. Have you taken any measurements? Interested if there is any rake left in front.

I have the 20's and as soon as I drove it home (600 miles) I went to my local tire shop and swapped out the stock 33s for 285/65s (34.6") So I think the wheel and tires will be a good fit for the 2" lift.

I haven't taken any measurements. It looks like there is still a slight rake, but I noticed that my passenger rear tire is up on some ice in that pic, so that may be what causing it. Here's the link to the kit I bought. Found it on Amazon for $100 less than RL.
ReadyLift 69-3920 2.0'' Front with 1.0'' Rear SST Lift Kit https://a.co/d/3Mkfj8n
 
Thanks! Yep, always good to save where you can. Was just curious. I did a quick measurement and I thought it was about 1.5" lower in front. So, if this kit will give me 1" on rear and 2" on front I should still have about .5" lower in front. I'm good with that. And there was another fella that used the RL leveling kit and installed both for 1.75". He said it was 100% completely level but with the body lines it looked high in the front so he removed the bottom spacers and it looked level.

I see no reason the RL 2" SST kit wouldn't work on the 2024 trucks. They are no different than the 2019-2023 trucks. Btw, look on Ebay for the kit. Iirc, it was $495 plus tax from SoCalCustomWheels. That was back in July according to my purchase history.

Yeah I had the truck about 2 weeks when I first asked the question. And sites like American Truck, Real Truck, and Amazon all said it would not fit a '24. And RL said they couldn't confirm. I always forget to check eBay, thanks.

Ahh, didn't think about Ebay. Save even more. Did you install yourself or took to shop? Just wondering on how much trouble to self install or how much a shop would charge. Most of the time when I add suspension to a vehicle I take to my local tire shop. They are honest and each time they have been the cheaper options by a long shot. Plus, you're going to need an alignment afterwards. Thanks again!

I haven't installed yet. It's sitting on a shelf in my garage. Lack of time. I'm slow, so I always multiple my estimated work time by 4. If the book says 5 hours in probably going to need 15-20. Check, recheck, torque to spec, loctite, etc. I'm meticulously anal about detail.

I did look into what my tire shop wanted for the install when I got tires rotated and balanced. They told me they outsource that kind of work. I said forget it on that since the other shop is on the opposite side of town and didn't have an alignment rack.

If you can change out a strut you'll be okay on this job. You will need a coil compressor, so too rental from Advance or AutoZone might be necessary. In my garage if I don't have the tool I buy it or make it, so I have everything needed to get the job done.

Yeah, no coil compressor. I'm pretty sure or at least hope my local tire shop would do it. Small town, so no other shops. But they've installed a lift on a Jeep I have and changed out coilovers on my previous truck. One guy there does most of that type of work and he seems pretty good. I work in another city and there are several shops so may call around just to get some idea of $$.

I hear ya. Installed powered running boards on my truck. Took me almost double the time, but watch the install video, look at the truck, go back and verify on video then perform the task. Measure twice cut once type of guy!

Iirc, Advance has a coil compressor you can rent. A couple hours of your time might be worth several hundred dollars in your pocket.

I had it installed. There's a shop in my town that sells and installs all the aftermarket toys...lifts, wheels & tires, bedliner, engine tuners, exhausts etc. He charges $125 an hour. The lift was 4 hours.
